First Listen: Vintage Trouble brings back the R&B Band

(December 2, 2018) Back in the 1970s and 80s, self contained bands dominated the R&B charts, bringing equal parts of sugar and funk, and creating scores of legendary songs that we sing to this day. But the 2000s haven't been kind to bands in R&B, as solo performers have taken the spotlight. Longtime faves like Mint Condition and Earth Wind & Fire are still doing their thing to loving audiences, but newer top flight bands like Water Seed, Mamas Gun and The Rebirth find themselves as welcome rarities in the modern R&B music scene.

Enter into the fray Vintage Trouble, a four piece  act that has been one of R&B’s best kept secrets since forming in 2010. Consisting of Ty Taylor (vocals), Nalle Colt (guitar), Rick Barrio Dill (bass), and Richard Danielson (drums), Vintage Trouble delivers a sound that is Chic meets AWB meets Hootie & the Blowfish. And they’ve built up quite a following around with world with their constant touring and appearances on Kimmel, The Tonight Show and many more.

VT has just released the collection Chapter Two – EP 1, and it is all that. Covering broad musical ground – from the classic soul balladry of “My Whole World Stopped Without You” to the pop/funk blend of “Keep On Rollin” - this disc is a complete winner that we think SoulTrackers will dig.

With our latest First Listen, we’re featuring the video for the lead track, “Do Me Right,” a tasty slice of dance funk. But we absolutely recommend you check out the full EP below. And let us know if you’re digging Vintage Trouble as much as we are!
